Does anyone have a suggestion on what type of mosquito netting to bring to Maho Bay to use to cover each bed?
We've been to Maho Bay Campground when the mosquitos were active and did not have problems in the cabin. They did get us well and good outside of the cabin.
When we stayed at Callaloo Villa we had nets like the one linked to below. Callaloo's bedrooms were completely open with no screens.
I would only go with mosquito nets if you are extremely sensitive to mosquitos or immune system compromised. There are occasional reports of Dengue fever, but I have only ever known one person to get it.
Rick is correct, they don't get you inside the cabin. Plus there is a fan that will keep them away while you are sleeping. For me, the no see ums were what got me in Maho. Try to stay away from the beach at dawn and dusk which is when they are the worst.
don't bother with the netting. pick up a few things at cabelas.com or rei.com and you'll be fine
1. mosquitto coils made by coghlan's under $10
2. deep woods off or ultrathon under $10
3. thermacell $29.
burn the coils in the cabin when you're there, rub the lotion on twice a day and tote the thermacell around with you. it's portable and can be turned on anywhere. you can also clip it to a back pack and use on a hike. these are all small and easy to pack. good luck and have a great vacation!
